[REBOL] Cross Platform? Then what about Mac OS X?
From: laurencegiddings:mac at: 26-Sep-2002 0:59
After reading the long discussions recently on the
importance/significance of Rebols
multi platform/OS capabilities I am prompted to ask once again when
support for the
Macintosh OS X system might be forth coming?
Considering the Mac community is estimated to be around 25 million users
and there is a strong developer community within that user base
and remembering that the Mac, especially in its new OS X guise is both a
very internet/connection orientated and 'open' system for both
and connectivity development.
I really cannot understand the apparent lack of interest in
rebol /Core and /View package to support such a large and growing
section of the
computing community. Especially as many of the new Mac OS X users are
not from windows but from Unix and Linux systems which Rebol currently
IMHO a computer savvy Mac OS X user/developer writing cross platform
to enable them to transfer/re-use their functionality in a Win 98/XP/NT
office, for example,
would appear to be a perfect vehicle for the much discussed break
through of Rebol
to a wider community.
On a personal note my own Rebol aspirations are necessarily on hold
until such time
as I can run Rebol on my operating system of choice..... Mac OS X.
[I can't afford either the money or the time to run a PC just to
develop Rebol apps on]
I know there are a few Mac users around on this ML, but I am sure there
many many more if RT would only support us.....
